The working title of my doctoral research is 'Bankruptcy in Eighteenth-Century England: a Social Account'.

I completed a BA in Film and Video at the London College of Printing (which has long since been absorbed into the London College of Communications, University of the Arts London), and an MA in Education  at the London Institute of Education, now part of UCL.  More recently I gained an MA in History at University of Exeter.

Before devoting my time to historical research I was a teacher of English and Spanish, a director of studies, and deputy principal.  I hold the RSA/Cambridge Certificate and Diploma (CELTA and DELTA).  My MA in Education specialised in TESOL and management in education.​

The only film that survives from my film student days is this second-year solo project.  It was made with just a few spare reels of super-8 film and an old camera.  Like many student films it pays homage to Andrei Tarkovsky, but of the work I did, it’s the remnant I like the most (running time 9 minutes).

For the best viewing results, turn your lights down and your volume up.
